After a long flight, the journey between the airport and your accommodation always feels like the last painful hurdle before you can finally relax, take a shower, and maybe even nap a little. But for some lucky travelers to New York City this summer, the trip between the airport and their hotel will be a lot shorter and much more scenic than a cab, shuttle, or train ride could ever be.

From July 1, 2024 to September 2, 2024, guests staying two nights or more in select suites at The St. Regis New York; JW Marriott Essex House New York; W New York – Union Square; The New York EDITION; The Ritz-Carlton New York, NoMad; and The Luxury Collection Hotel Manhattan Midtown, will be able to travel from/to the airport to/from their hotel by helicopter.

Thanks to a collaboration with the Luxury Group by Marriott International, Blade Urban Air Mobility will take guests from/to John F. Kennedy International Airport and Newark Liberty International Airport to/from their hotel. The roundtrip service will be complimentary and incredibly picturesque.

Of course, guests won’t be dropped directly on the roof of the above-mentioned hotels, instead they will land at the helipad at Blade Lounge East on East 34th Street or the newly renovated Blade Lounge West on West 30th Street where a luxury car service will drive them to their accommodations.

“This collaboration with Blade advances our mission to provide guests with exceptional service and amenities through innovation and imagination,” says George Hammer, Global Head of Luxury Marketing, Marriott International, in a press release.

Guests who are not staying in one of the select suites that qualify for the complimentary helicopter transfers can still take advantage of the collaboration between the Luxury Group and Blade Urban Air Mobility. No matter what room you’re staying in, you’ll get discounted rates for Blade’s services.

If you’d rather skip the busy NYC airport experience entirely, you could try flying directly into Manhattan with Tailwind Air. The airline flies float planes between New York City’s Skyport and destinations on the East Coast, including Boston, Washington-Dulles, Provincetown, Sag Harbor, and more.
